Memories of Ipswich
The building on the left, the old Post Office, is now the TSB Bank. My Father-in-Law can remember the trams travelling in front of these buildings....no shelters, so the poor old Teddy Boy got wet!!!!!
The building on the left with gable roof is where my Mum In Law got her bouquet for her wedding.
Opposite the beehive, the white-fronted shop was Saronis Photographers and I can remember a chap that used to stand in the doorway dressed somedays as an army officer, other times as a cowboy. He went to court once for impersonating an officer. If my memory serves me right, the Beehive band drummer lived in Cobbold Street and wore blue tinted glasses.
This is where my husband's Uncle and Auntie got married, brother to Janet Halls nee Smith.
